okay now something is really weird. a program seeming to be written in delphi loaded itself just now and says 'it's time' then i click okay and it says runtime error not found and then the dekstop loaded up. Arghw hats going on? virus? or hacker?

hi again, i ran the scan and all virus definitions were up to date mind you. no infected files found. what could have caused the desktop not loading. Anyone else have any ideas?
